Here for a reason

“We are here for a reason, conceived in love, brought into being by the One who brought the universe into being, who knows our innermost thoughts, values our good intentions, and has more faith in us than we have in ourselves. That, if only we mediate on it, gives us the strength to turn intention into deed, lifting us from the person we might have been into the person we become.”

Rabbi Jonathon Sacks, author of “Genesis: The book of beginnings. Covenant and conversation”
